Second Series, Volume 2, Issue 4 (Fall 2014)
Fron the Editor's Desk
Founded in 1992, the Colonial Latin American Historical Review (CLAHR) is proud to present the Second Comprehensive lndex for volumes 11-17 of the First Series, representing the years 2002- 2008. During those years, CLAHR's staff edited 96 articles, 120 book reviews, and 325 book notes. The present Comprehensive lndex is designed as a finding aid for the many significant studies, individual contributors, topics, publications, and geographical references. Together with the first CLAHR Comprehensive Index that covered publications for volumes 1-10 during the period 1992-2001 the Second Comprehensive Index aims to facilitate accessibility to information found in CLAHR for researchers, students, and the general reader.
For 23 years, CLAHR owed its success to the support of our many authors, book reviewers, and, especially, peer reviewers who unselfishly gave of their time and expertise in assisting our editors. The many CLAHR supporters and subscribers deserve much credit for sustaining its publication. Similarly, CLAHR's international editorial board, whose members dedicated much time and energy toward collaborating, promoting, and participating in making CLAHR the top notch scholarly journal on Latin American colonial history, deserves much credit for their stellar dedication. Indeed, in that time, CLAHR has been one of the very few journals dedicated to Spanish colonial history and culture that has contributed toward a better understanding of our colonial heritage and culture shared throughout the Americas.
Although CLAHR ceased publication in 2015, those who contributed to its successes know that they inspired a resurgence of interest in colonial studies. Future plans discussed include the possibility of digitizing the entire 23-year run of CLAHR for future use by students, researchers, and the general reader. It is our hope that CLAHR will, in that way, continue to be an inspiration to future researchers and writers of our Latin American colonial past and its heritage.
